In case you weren't already aware that every day is a good day to celebrate beer, someone somewhere decided that there needed to be a dedicated International Beer Day. The chosen one was the first Friday in August and its been a growing thing each year with more breweries and venues around the world adding their weight to the celebrations.
For a list of Australian events taking place on August 4 (or August 5, for those following the World Clock) check the list below as we’ll update if and when we’re notified by breweries and venues.
